Syfy has finally shared the official trailer for “Ghost Wars”, a paranormal action series that will reteam the network with “Van Helsing” producer Nomadic Pictures.
Vincent D’Onofrio (Sinister), Kim Coates (Silent Hill, Resident Evil: Afterlife), Avan Jogia, Kristin Lehman and Meatloaf topline the 10-episode series, which like “Van Helsing” will premiere in the U.S. on Syfy October 5 at 10/9c.
Set in a remote Alaskan town that has been overrun by paranormal forces, the series focuses on local outcast Roman Mercer (Jogia) who must overcome the town’s prejudices and his own personal demons if he’s to harness his repressed psychic powers and save everyone from the mass haunting that’s threatening to destroy them all.
Simon Barry (“Continuum”, “Van Helsing”) created the series and will serve as showrunner, with production underway now in Vancouver.
David Von Ancken directed the pilot; other episodic directors include Leslie Hope, Michael Nankin, Mathias Herdndl, Jason Priestley and Barry. Nomadic Pictures’ Chad Oakes and Mike Frislev are executive producing with Barry, Dennis Heaton and Von Ancken.
